So what is a teacher to do????? I could not pass up a teachable moment because I could not find what I needed so I quickly made up my own form. Plus it supports the common core of student self-reflection that we have started at our school. Hmmmm I may have something here.
So I passed out their tests and then we discussed ways that the students that did well did to study. Some answers I heard were; flashcards for vocabulary or write the study guide questions on one side and the answers on the other, make up a mini test using the study guide, use online tools, review the study guide or have a parent quiz them. The students then filled out the reflection form I created and I had them bring it home for a parent to sign and then return it the next day. I did give points for completing and turning in the reflection form. Believe it or not I got all the forms returned the next day.
Tell me what you think. I am so nervous. Also how do you feel about cover pages? I personally do not print them out even though they are very cute. I just do not have the money to pay for all the ink for my printer to print out all those colorful cover pages. So I did not make a cover page. Should I? What are your thoughts on cover pages.
Have a great week,
